Carers to feed back on what our commissioning priorities should be for 2015 - 2017, and what they thought about our suggested approach to meet the requirements of the Care Act.
Carers told us that we should continue to offer a mix of support in the community, and support via personal budgets. Carers wanted to be more involved in commissioning activity, and for commissioning activity to focus on ways to promote the early identification of carers.
We developed the Joint Carers Commissioning Strategy based on feedback from carers, local partners and key stakeholders across SCCG and LBS. The Strategy is being implemented over the course of 2015 - 17.
